Demographics and Political Views of News Audience
Pew Research Report. In general, the regular audiences for most television and print news outlets tend to be older than the public as a whole.
et there are some notable exceptions. As was the case two years ago, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show have the youngest audiences of the 24 news sources tested: 43% of Colbert’s regular audience is younger than 30, as is 39% of the Daily Show’s regular viewers. Just 23% of the public is 18-to-29.
